Robert Brownstone, P.C.

In 2020, after reaching his 20th anniversary as a combination lawyer and technologist at a prominent Silicon Valley-based law firm, Robert Brownstone launched his own: 1) law firm; 2) tech consulting company; and 3) law/tech educational provider.

Most of his work entails advising organizations of all shapes and sizes on eWorkplace policies, protocols, and training; electronic discovery; retention/ destruction policies and protocols; information-security and data privacy; and social-media rewards and risks.  Robert also collaborates with clients as to computer solutions enabling compliance with legal obligations.

A nationally recognized resource on electronic information for decades, he has authored over 95 articles on law/tech issues, been cited in more than 30 law review articles, and been featured or quoted more than 80 times in various media outlets, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, AP, Forbes, and BusinessWeek. 

Robert has delivered over 500 presentations to lawyers, technologists, HR folks, and law students and chaired more than 25 conferences on all of the above topics plus others, such as Legal Ethics of 21st Century Technology and Metadata / Redaction Concerns.  He has taught at many law schools all around the country.

Educating others is Robert’s passion. Similar to the little boy in the first Incredibles movie who grew up to be Syndrome, his motto is "When everyone is a superhero, no one will be.”
